Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Won't turn off unless unplugged

I have a Sony KP-51HW40 rear projection TV. This is my first big screen TV. I was watching a DVD(the picure quality was amazing) last night and the picture went black with white lines through it. The sound was still working fine. When I turned the DVD player off, everything stopped. The TV itself will not turn off either by remote or by pushing the power button. Actually I'm just assuming that it is still on since the Standby light and the Stereo light are lit on the front of the TV and won't go out unless I pull the plug. At this point I have a blank screen and no sound. The TV is second hand and out of warranty. Can anyone help me? Does anyone have an idea what it might cost to fix this?

Ther eis a stand by function on the Television. If you have the owners manual read about that function. Th ered light stays on because it is programed to come on a t a certain time. Go to menu and find the stand by function.

The Problem you are having is a Cathode to Grid Short in the Red CRT,When it Shorts the screen will Go all Bright Red and shut Down,The Best fix Would Be to Replace the Defective CRT (GUN)

Screen shakes / jumps vertically on my Sony KP-51HW40


The jitter is called a vertical sync problem. The problem is on the "A" board. It can be replaced or rebuilt but will be quite expensive to service.
